A day on the Metro - Moscow

We never managed to make it our for dinner last night as we were too full up from lunch so we decided to see what Moscow looks like at night and it is lovely all lit up.

We went into GUM for some window shopping but it seems nothing is priced, if you have to ask how much it costs then you can't afford it!

We were suprised this morning to be able to visit Lenin's Mausoluam which had been closed every day so far.  There was no queue either so we went in and made our way past a very waxy looking Lenin. 

We then went off to visit some of the Metro stations that we had heard so much about.  They are great, nothing like English stations.  Some of them have mosaics some have statues and most have marble columns.

We are hoping to make it our for dinner tonight and try caviar, not sure if we are ready for that!

At 21.35 local time tomorrow we join the train to start our 5 day journey to Mongolia so I doubt we will have Wi-Fi in between here and there so will catch up soon.
